File this one under “Cool Things To Do When You’re Thirsty”: Every Saturday at 2 p.m., starting at the 133-year-old White Horse Tavern–where Dylan Thomas, Jack Kerouac and Bob Dylan once raised glasses–local actors lead groups on a walking tour of several Greenwich Village bars rich with literary history.
At each stop, you can slug down (or sip, if you’re the dainty sort) a drink while the guide regales you with stories about Allen Ginsberg or Eugene O’Neill or any of the great authors who have slugged (or sipped, if they were the dainty sort) cocktails right on that very spot.
I haven’t taken this tour so I can’t vouch for it, but it certainly sounds like fun. Beer and books. What’s not to
Tours are every Saturday at 2pm, beginning at the White Horse Tavern, 567 Hudson Street and 11th Street.
Tickets are $20, $15 for students/seniors. (I’m guessing that the booze is extra.) To make a reservation call (212) 613-5796.
